Louisiana Art & Folk Festival, Columbia, LA

Mama and I attended our third book signing at the Schepis Museum in Columbia during the 2011 Art & Folk Festival there on Oct. 8th. Joining us this year was Janie Wilkins, former resident and native of Columbia. Janie signed and sold her books "Janie's Unblievable Journey" volumens 1 and 2 and was joned by her sister Mary French and son Eric Pierce.

It was a fantastic day for us all, visiting our hometown once again and taking photos of our favorite places, one of which was the First United Methodist Church, Circa 1910. Mama and I drove by my grandmother's house on Lakeside St., up to the family plot at the cemetery and down Pearl Street where we lived when I was a little girl.

The festival was very well attended this year and the weather was absolutely beautiful. Janie and Mama and I had friends greet us at the Museum. We had a great day for sales and a super visit with friends. Thanks to Janie, Mary and Eric for joining us on this special day.
